Thursday Must Read: Second Quan Recall Petition Surfaces; Middle Class No Longer in the Majority

Stories you shouldn’t miss:

1. The proposed recall of Mayor Jean Quan is already fracturing before it has started, as a second group opposed to the mayor has surfaced to do a recall of its own. The Chron reports that the second group, headed by ex-mayoral candidate Greg Harland, is frustrated with the first group, which is run by Gene Hazzard, a photographer for the Oakland Post newspaper. The Oakland City Clerk officially certified Hazzard’s recall petition yesterday, but Harland’s group doesn’t believe that Hazzard can gather the requisite 19,000 signatures. However, it’s unclear whether having two recall petitions going on simultaneously is legal.
